You can read below about all kinds of Dell customers that are realizing big benefits like these. Like the hospital that has boosted its EHR system performance by 40 percent and cut backup times by 50 percent. Or the car repair chain that accelerated performance of its core application by 300 percent!

How do the Dell Storage SC Series of all-flash and hybrid storage arrays do it? They feature a unique, automated tiering architecture. It can provide the right mix of flash performance and price to meet an organization’s needs for the lowest dollar/GB cost in the market.* Flash tiering can dramatically accelerate active workloads, so applications run faster and access data much quicker. Advanced technologies in compression, deduplication, automated tiering and thin provisioning also help ensure data throughputs are always optimized.

The following six companies implemented Dell all-flash or hybrid storage solutions to gain better overall data and application performance, while lowering their TCO.

Wheeling Hospital
